I just found that since I actually followed the respiratory isolation precautions and wore a mask every time, that I don't need the prophylaxis! Good thing, too, because the whole time I was taking care of the kid I was thinking, "This is BS," because the kid didn't even have a cough, looked great, and was satting 98-100% on RA for all three days!
